Edmonton (23-24-8-1) at Minnesota (19-21-15-2) 8:00 pm EST

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers try to match their longest winning streak of the season Friday night as they visit the Minnesota Wild in a Northwest Division contest.

The Oilers posted wins over Anaheim and St. Louis before the All-Star break and moved within a game of .500 with a fight-filled 5-1 home win over Atlanta.

Edmonton, which has not been at .500 since November 28, won four in a row from November 13-20. Raffi Torres and Shawn Horcoff had a goal and an assist apiece Wednesday night for the Oilers, who were on their way to the win when a wild brawl started with 1:49 remaining.

Edmonton picked up 95 penalty minutes and enters its four-game road trip with some good feelings.

"It was maybe the perfect time for a game like that for us," Oilers coach Craig MacTavish said. "We came out of the break and played a really good game, moved the puck, and did a lot of things well."

Although the Oilers are 8-12-5-1 away from home and winless in their last four road games (0-3-1), they are 7-0-1-1 in nine all time visits to the Xcel Energy Center and 13-1-4-2 all time vs. the Wild.

Minnesota, which had won two in a row before the All-Star break, saw its home record drop to 11-11-6-1 with Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Andrew Brunette scored the lone goal for the Wild, who had totaled eight in their previous two contests.
